's strongest early voting states. there was a survey, by pew i believe, shows that obama is winning early vote by 7 points, he won is by 16 16, 4 years ago. lou: as we look at numbers, the fox polls the two men are locked up, 46% each. and that happens to be where the real clear politics poll of polls has this race. knotted up, even. with 5 days remaining before the election. your thoughts? >> well, here is the thing, momentum is with mitt romney, storm is a little bit of a bump. his numbers have been going up. and president obama's numbers down. with regard to early voting as well, democrat strategy to get as many people out to vote who are reliable voters while republican strategy to get hard to get voters, those who need that extra nudge, thret gem out first, on election day, it will be republicans with a larger pool of reliable voters to get out, democrats are using them at, i think that momentum is are mitt romney, you see the newspaper endorsement, state after state they went for obama in 08, now mitt romney n 12, you see this in florida, nation alltel graph in new hampshire, in that st
1988, i think. i mean, these are states that barack obama has never trailed in. it shows just how desperate mitt romney is because he can't compete in the swing states. this is a perfect storm that hit mitt romney this week. it showed barack obama as a commander in chief. the gallup poll was knocked off. it was his best poll. it showed the two competing businesses. not only did you have chris christie out there, but you also have bob mcdonnell of west virginia, another republican surrogate, who said the obama administration's response has been incredibly fast. >> i wouldn't go that far. they came in separately and they left separately. but sometimes governors have to do what governors do and presidents have to do what presidents do. i get that. and i think for the moment, your man probably got some. john, i want to ask you, i've been reading in the newspapers -- you correct me if i'm wrong. your superpack and other republican super packs have put $4 million into pennsylvania. team obama, only $625,000. for $4 million, jonathan, you want a rate of return better than a utility execu
today across the pivotal buckeye state, the cornerstone of his midwestern firewall, president obama cast himself in the same bipartisan way that appealed to independent voters four years ago. >> over the last four years, the status quo in washington has fought us every step of the way. >> reporter: it would be unusual for a democratic president four days before election day to actually suggest it would be okay with him if voters went for a congressional candidate other than a democrat. but eager to paint himself as not part of the washington problem, the president did just that -- at every stop. >> as long as i'm president, you know, i've said, i will work with anybody of any party to move this country forward. if you want to break the gridlock in congress, you'll vote for leaders who feel the same way whether they're democrat, republican or independent. >> reporter: president obama seemed energized and confident today. he actually did a little jig at hiss his last top here in lima, ohio. obama campaign officials are talking up their early voting program, years in the making. with republ
. obama campaign officials argue polls of early voters in battleground states suggest their bank of obama votes means that romney will have to win on election day well more than half the votes in key states to win. but the president is not relying solely on early voting or even on this new rekindled bipartisan pitch. in this state alone, diane, president obama and his allies have run 16,000 more ads than romney and his allies. and if that's not enough for you, on monday, president obama will be back here in ohio with bruce springsteen. diane? >> okay, thank you jake. >>> and also tonight, the latest in our brand new daily abc news/"washington post" polls. tonight, the poll gives mitt romney a one-point edge. so, we asked abc's david muir to tell us his strategy for the final stretch. >> reporter: mitt romney bolting through the battlegrounds. today, on the plane, it was the candidate taking pictures. romney capturing images of his staff sneaking a nap as romney races to the finish. in just the last 24 hours, virginia -- >> virginia, we're going to win on november 6th, i'll tell you that.
this is, by looking at new jersey politics. remembering in new jersey, blue state, president obama carried by a big margin in '08 and will carry it by a big margin next week. christie has to run for re-election in that state next year, 2013. he's fairly well positioned to win but it's never easy being a republican in new jersey. one of the strategies christie has had to appeal to nonrepublican voters in new jersey in the last year is speaking out and publicizing alliances with democrats which creates the image of the bipartisan guy who won't get bogged down in petty republican politics. for instance, he's had this alliance with cory booker, democratic mayor of newark. alliances with democrats in mayor from south jersey. now president obama. like i said for christie to win next year, he has to get a fair number of people voting for barack obama this year. >> let me raise this, though, joy. what struck me, as we deal with this presidential race, is that it was announced today that the president is coming to new jersey tomorrow to see some of the devastation and that governor christie was goi
indicating they intend to put real pressure on the president in these states while the obama campaign would like to wish it's 2008. the reality is they are forced to play some defense in more states that they once believed were safer for the president. the obama campaign is taking the threat seriously enough that they sent president clinton to minnesota tuesday. they're buying airtime in all three states that romney would like to make xcompetitive. but the president's campaign, they called romney's move desperate. in a video released yesterday, the race was framed to his volunteers this way. >> we are ahead or tied in every single battleground state. that means mitt romney has to win not only the tossups but a couple states where we have a clear lead to have any chance of winning the presidency. >> messina ran through the battleground states but explicitly did not mention michigan or minnesota. he says, quote, they are throwing money at states where they never built an organization and have been losing for two years. the romney campaign and its allies' decision to go up with advertising in
polls in three states that were traditionally democrats leaning obama, and president obama won in 2008: pennsylvania, minnesota, and michigan. michigan, of course, is romney's native state and polls suggest obama has the lead but mitt romney has closed the gap to the margin of error. obama campaigns scoffs at this and senior obama advisor axelrod said if they lost any of those he would shave off his mustache of 40 years but mitt romney has considered headed there a sign they think the plafield is expanding beyond the seven states that have been hotly contested and present the romney campaign opportunity to put obama on defense and have the offense ease the path to 270. very, very close, six days left, polls suggest everything is tight and no way to know who has the edge. so, no time for napping, either. >>shepard: i was hoping you got a nap while everyone else was working. >>carl: not a chance. romney is staying busy. >>shepard: thank you, carl cameron. massive gridlock around new york city, 4.3 million people use the subways and there is no subway. commuters returned to work and many
of the most recent polling in the state of ohio shows president obama ahead in ohio by 2.3 points. these "real clear politics" averages are an imperfect measure. i want to give you a very rough idea of how basically how close it is right now. that's what it is in ohio. in virginia, that same polling average has mitt romney ahead by 0.5 points, and in north carolina, the polling average has mr. romney ahead by 3.8 points. so that's the 7:00 hour. and then in the 8:00 hour, polls will be closing in these 18 states. of these states, again, there will be three that we're going to be watching most closely. florida, pennsylvania, and new hampshire. the "real clear politics" polling average right now in florida has romney ahead. in pennsylvania the polling average says it is president obama who's ahead by 4.6 points. in new hampshire, again, president obama ahead with a 1.3 lead. that's the 8:00 hour. at 9:00, we'll have polls closed in all those places, and the blinking states here will be the ones that are closing. 14 states mostly in the midwest and the south. of the -- southwest, excuse me. of th
. >>> president obama is slamming governor romney over an ad his campaign is running in the key battleground state of ohio. watch. >> look, i understand governor romney has had a tough time here in ohio because he was against saving the auto industry. and it's hard to run away from a position when you're on videotape saying, let detroit go bankrupt. but, but, you've got to own what you say. this isn't a game. these are people's jobs at stake. these are people's lives. you don't scare hard-working americans just to scare up some votes. that's not what being president is all about. >> the president was responding to this romney ad that implied the auto bailout plan failed and chrysler will move jobs to china. that's a claim that chrysler has vehemently denied. >>> on the other side of ohio, mitt romney sharpened his attack on obama focusing on the economy. >> now, i know when we're elected the economy and american jobs will still be stagnant. but i won't waste any time complaining about my predecessor. i will spend my effort trying to pass partisan legislation unrelated to economic growth. from day
. in the battleground state of wisconsin, volunteers for the obama and romney camps aren't easing up on their ground game in the final stretch. in fact, they are doubling down, knocking on more doors, making more phone calls to encourage as many of their supporters as possible to get to the polls on tuesday. our ted rowlands is in racine, wisconsin, this morning. i understand you caught up with some of these volunteers. >> yeah, randi, we went along with volunteers from both sides. this is a close race here and both campaigns are urging all their volunteers, not only from wisconsin, but from neighboring states to come here to wisconsin and help them get out the vote. this is what the political ground game looks like in racine, wisconsin. chelsea and adam are part of team romney and terry jackal is with team obama. each side is arm would addresses of people that support their candidate. their job is to meet them face-to-face, if nobody is home, leave a pamphlet, if somebody answers, get them to vote. >> i hope i'm making a difference. i believe that i am. >> reporter: both campaigns believe going doo
the candidates go. mitt romney made three campaign appearances in the state of virginia today. president obama jumped all over the place from wisconsin to nevada, to colorado. both candidates are making their closing arguments. interesting. a closing argument. what is mitt romney's closing argument? his latest incarnation is that he's the guy who reaches across the aisle? >> we have to stop the dividing and the attacking and the demonizing. we've got to reach across the aisle, bring in good democrats with good republicans and finally do the people's business and put the politics behind. >> we just need to stop demonizing, don't we? well, old mittster, show leadership and pick up the phone and call mitch mcconnell. it's interesting for mitt romney to present himself as a guy who works across the aisle while president obama is being label by the tea partyers and everybody else in the right wing as nothing but the divider in chief. romney might want to pick up the phone, you know, give this guy a call, keynote speaker of the republican convention. governor christie spent the last four days praisi
for the obama campaign to hit back hard. in the state of florida it actually gets worse. romney desperately needs to win the state of florida and he is running a spanish language ad meant to stoke the fears of cuban-americans. the ad tries to connect president obama to venezuelan president hugo chavez and fidel castro. "the miami herald" reports the romney campaign would not furnish the ad despite repeated requests. in other words, the ad is so outrageous, the romney campaign tried to slip it under the radar. obviously the strategy is backfiring. let's turn to annette taddeo, member of the miami-dade democratic party. annette, great to have you with us tonight. i keep saying the bread basket to victory for president obama is going to be south florida. turnout is to important. but now this spanish language ad that's out, what is this doing to stroke the fears and the emotions of people down in that portion of the state? >> well, it just -- i think mitt romney is finally just getting absolutely desperate. it is him learning a little bit of -- him realizing he cannot win, just like you said, w
romney are tied at 46%. today the battleground states becoming a battlefield. >> president obama has seen a once steady lead in michigan decline two points. michigan is in toss-up status. the poll is from the detroit news. it finds obama leading romney 47-45%. that is the second poll in the week that has shown a tight race in michigan. >> it's not too late to turn this around. we can save medicare and social security. we can cut spending to get this budget balanced and pay off this debt. we can get people out of poverty and back to the middle-class. we can get america back on the right track and give our kids a debt free future. >> so ask yourself, who do you trust to be straight with you, to level with you. who do you trust to stand up for the middle-class and measuring? ladies and gentlemen, we are not. these guys, we are not in decline. they are in denial. >> you got fundamentals in this race. one of the fundamentals is the economy is horrible. you have the tea party that arisen since 2010. you have romney momentum. you've got people, people decided that obama is incompetent. he can't
. charles: the federal government is shut down today and even president obama himself said that states being hit by sandy won't have to deal with red tape to get federal aid. so do we even need the federal government for natural disasters like this one? the judge is next. look, if you have copd like me, you know it can be hard to breathe, and how that feels. copd includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. spiriva helps control my copd symptoms by keeping my airways open for 24 hours. plus, it reduc copd flare-ups. spiriva is t only once-daily inhaled copd maintenance treatment that does both. spiriva handihaler tiotropium bromide inhalation powder does not replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms. tell your doctor if you have kidney problems, glaucoma, trouble urinating, or an enlarged prostate. these may worsen with spiriva. discuss all medicines you take, even eye drops. stop taking spiriva and seek immediate medical help if your breathing suddenly worsens, your throat or tongue swells, you get hives, visionhanges or eye pain, or problems passing urine. other side effects include d
this state has prospered under a republican governor. look, this is a state that is split. it's a virtual dead heat. obama's got a bit of a lead, but as you know it's within that statistical margin of error so it could be a few points off one way or the other. it will come down to who comes out to vote. the last few days will be about encouraging those who have already decided. there's very little left in terms of evidence as to what you could do to possibly tell people i'm your guy. the question is you are sort of leaning towards me. do i go out and do it. mitt romney has made some errors in the last week or so in ohio, particularly with this issue of jeep and chrysler, getting money in the auto bailout and supposedly transferring manufacturing, having intention to transfer manufacturing to china. that is not playing well in ohio. >> let's talk about how the polls are playing in ohio. it's not possible to overstate the importance of ohio in determining who is going to win tuesday. no republican has ever won the presidency without taking a state. let's take a look at very latest data. a c
he will tour his state with president obama, a president he has praised for his administration's storm response. this is what he had to say to piers morgan. >> this is so much bigger than an election. this is the livelihood of the people of my state. what they expect me to do is get the job done. when someone asks me an honest question, i give an honest answer. how has the president been to deal with? he has been outstanding to deal with on this. i look forward to seeing him tomorrow. >> this is the same man who questioned the president's leadership at the republican national convention. >> we need politicians to care more about doing something and less about being something. it is time to end this era of absentee leadership in the oval office and send real leaders back to the white house. america needs mitt romney and paul ryan! and we need them right now. >> political analysts are confused. romney surrogate, fox and friends, tried to get christie to dial it back. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i ha
's going to win the state. however, you have to point out, the obama campaign says they're competing in all the battleground states, and they are. the president's one event today is in florida with bill clinton, 10:00 this morning. >> going to be right in the middle of the i-4 corridor. >> right in the middle. they're competing there. they're not giving up. they're using their most precious asset today, one obama visit with bill clinton to go to florida. so they're not giving up, but there's no question romney has an edge there right now. >> you usually have, mika, north florida against south florida and central florida being what makes a difference. the south florida poll out of miami-dade shows the president -- >> largest county in the state, 52%-43%. >> that's not a surprise. i will tell you, this next poll, though, is a surprise. >> all right. let's go to virginia. the latest "washington post" poll has president obama clinging to a four-point lead. last month it was an eight-point difference. shall we go to ohio? >> i want to talk about virginia for a second. mark, republicans got some
in the key state of ohio. today the latest cnn poll shows obama with a very slight edge there, but there's everything to play for. today, the last jobs report before election day was released. unemployment ticking up to 7.9%, but at the same time, 171,000 jobs were created. no surprise, both candidates reacted differently to the news. >> today, our businesses have created nearly five and a half million new jobs. this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today, we learned that it's actually 7.9% and that's nine million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> mitt romney earlier today. you're looking at live pictures now from westchester in ohio, where rudy giuliani, the former mayor of new york, has given a blistering speech attacking barack obama. in a few minutes, he will be on this show live and exclusive to tell me why he feels so strongly why the president should leave the offic

deal. by the way -- and then obama spends all day today in wisconsin, a state he would have thought would have been locked down by now. just their two schedules alone show you -- you know, how tight this is and that they are both trying to lock down states like florida and wisconsin that should have been in the bag for either one of them aircraft long time ago. i am not arguing arguing with y. look, this is going to be very, very close. anybody who thinks it's in the bag-- >>> i don't think it's in the bag. i am not going to say that. i want people, especially conserve testifies think they are a touchdown behind? and they have to fight hard in the closing days. but two emerging stories here. one is the libya/benghazigate, which has become a real problem. the president's been caught lying. it is not even a point of argument. the president goes in for a photo-op with chris christie and he's back on the campaign trail. he have gas stations shut down. we have looters breaking out. we have people dumpster diving. we have chaoses breaking out with the obama katrina emerging before our eye

tend to go for obama and southern part of the state for romney. so what happen in columbus? >> the changing demographics in columbus, obama won it convincingly in 2008, and george w. bush won it in 2004 with a strong showing in the southeast. it looks as if the romney forces have secured the base in the southeast and going up in the western part of the state and same for president obama in the northeast, and so it is a battle for the center part of the state and 19 counties that make up their part of the state and it is all about the ground game. gretchen, let me say real quick. in 1976, jimmie carter won ohio by 11,200 odd votes and less than one vote for precinct. in 2004 bush won 118,000 and we would have a president carry. that is how close it is right now. >> gretchen: that's how important one vote will be. thank you for your time. >> good to be with you, gretchen. >> gretchen: top lawmakers stepped up questions on who knew what on benghazi. judge napolitano on that next. massive chunk of atlantic city famed boardwalk simply washed away in the storm. we'll have that ne
